I'm confused as to what a "bench fly" is, so could you explain. If it is the DB fly, my answer for a bodyweight counterpart would be pushups between two chairs with a wide grip. This allows a great ROM.
To the question of which weighted exercise activates the most amount of muscle, well you've eliminated the clean, and my answer would have been the clean and pushpress, so I'll say the squat or split snatch. Bob Hoffman, of the old York Barbell club, onc said in his old Strength and Health magazine, that if a person only did natches and bent presses, they would not only become strong, but build a very powerful physique as well.

Tim is definitely right, except I would combine squat and deadlift (if you can do squat then you have the equipment for deadlift) as I feel that they are very natural complements. Good luck!
